Letter: Turf project has alternative locations

To the Editors:

With all the drama surrounding the recent P&Z ruling and subsequent launch of an appeal of the decision by neighbors, I wonder why the public conversation is not shifting towards other potential locations for the project.

The fact remains that Wilton Youth Football has identified multiple potential field locations which are not in a neighborhood, and yet they have refused to pursue any of them. Any of these would equally serve their purpose, all town-owned and centrally located. The town-owned fields at Allen's Meadow and the Guy Whitten field next to the high school stadium are both locations completely removed from private residences and their concerns.

Isn't it time we seriously consider less divisive locations for this project?
